Study: Lack Of Vaccine Leads To Faded Interest In Flu Shot

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – Remember a few years ago, when there were huge health concerns about the newly-developed H1N1 flu vaccine?

WWJ’s Gary Lundy reports, the public’s interest in the vaccine faded over time.

When a new strain of influenza began to sicken even healthy younger adults three years ago, public interest in getting the vaccine started strong but declined over time even as more people were getting sick.

A new study from the RAND corporation and the University of Michigan found that the more the public learned about this new type of influenza and the longer they had to wait for the vaccine, the less interested they were in getting it.
